Australian Football League Live Collingwood Magpies vs Fremantle Dockers Stream AFL 2016 Seasons Week 14 match will be kick off at MCG Stadium, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, Friday 24 June 2016 online, 19.50 pm (AEDT) and its broadcast on Channel Seven, Foxtell.
Collingwood look to reset their season after the bye, while Freo shoots for an unlikely four in a row.
After spirited performances including a win against Geelong and an unlucky loss to the Western Bulldogs, Collingwood lost their way in the fortnight before the bye, trounced by Port and Melbourne by 67 and 46 points respectively.
Fremantle has won three in a row, with each win more full of merit than the last, despatching Essendon at home, Brisbane at the Gabba and Port at home, putting a severe dent in the finals aspirations of the Power.
Collingwood leads 6-4 in the last 10 matches between the two sides, and have won all four MCG clashes in that time. Freo has won the last three games between the sides.
Under Nathan Buckley, the Pies have played 15 matches at the MCG against non-Victorian sides, at 33% ATS, and winning 10 at -8% POT. Their overall record at the ground under him is -4% POT and 40% ATS.
Fremantle has won six from ten at the MCG under Ross Lyon, at +30% POT and 60% ATS. 60% of these matches have gone the over.
Collingwood maintains favouritism, based almost exclusively on the back of home ground advantage, given the recent form of the two teams is going in the opposite direction. If this was in Perth, Fremantle would be $1.30.
The Pies are averaging 56 points per game over the last three rounds, as injuries have denied them their first choice forward-line. Fremantle have kept their opposition to 60 points per game on their three game winning streak.
A lesson in gambling is never back a bad team in bad form at short odds. The Dockers looks the clear value here.
